Man cleared of theft charges
Kevin Keheley can breathe a sigh of relief after a jury exonerated him of theft.
Keheley was accused of defrauding a man after entering into a contract of developing an application for a smartphone, which he was never able to produce.
The contract was for $17,000 and Keheley was paid up front with $10,000.
Keheley then relocated to Austin but promised to finish the application. This, however, never happened.
Denver criminal lawyer Laurie Schmidt, who defended for Keheley, said that what happened was a business dispute.
Schmidt added that Keheley had no intention of running away from giving back the money that he received as evidenced by emails showing his intention to pay the money back.
No bail for man who knocked down a 79YO black man
The bail application of Conrad Barret, who is charged with a hate crime, was denied, something that Barret's lawyer said they have been expecting.
Houston criminal attorney George Parnham said that according to the judge, his 27-year-old client might avoid a criminal conviction. He also poses as a danger to the public.
Barret was charged after he attacked an old, black man; filmed the act and showed it to someone, who turned out to be an arson investigator.
Barrett is looking at more than a 10-year prison term and a fine of more than $200,000 should he get convicted.
Cuyahoga corruption snitch gets six years in prison
J. Kevin Kelley was handed a six-year prison sentence for his involvement in the Cuyahoga corruption case, considered as one of the biggest in the county.
Kelley was the first defendant to offer his cooperation to the FBI who was investigating the corruption issue.
He admitted to being the one who collects and pays off the bribes to county officials.
During his sentencing, Kelley issued an apology to his family as well as the taxpayers of Cuyahoga County.
Kelley has also been ordered to pay restitution of about $700,000.
Kelley's cooperation ensured the cooperation of other defendants in the case and the conviction of several people involved in the corruption.
Cleveland defense attorney John Gibbons said there is no excuse for Kelley's involvement in the corruption, however, his cooperation is the best way for him to make amends.
Murder charge dismissed in shooting death of man from Trussville
The murder charge filed against Freddie Earl Patton,53, for the shooting death of his girlfriend's father, Kenneth Millar, 81, has been dismissed upon the request of the Deputy District Attorney.
An order for Patton's release from jail has been signed, however, he may not be off the hook yet as the DA's office has stated that the case will be turned over to the grand jury in Jefferson County.
The prosecution moved for the dismissal after arguing with the defense who wanted to further question the detective about the autopsy report.
Birmingham criminal attorney John Lentine said that a manslaughter charge should have been filed instead of murder because the shooting was an accident.
If Patton gets indicted, he will have to go back to jail.
NFL player's non-cooperation sees theft charges dropped against woman who stole his jewelry
Theft charges against Subhanna Beyah were dropped after her victim, New York Giants' Shaun Rogers, refused to cooperate with the authorities.
Jonathan Meltz, Beyah's lawyer in Miami, could not be contacted to comment on the issue.
Miami prosecutors believed that Beyah did to Rogers what she did to two other men, wherein she drugged them before stealing their valuables.
According to the police, Rogers had met Beyah at the nightclub of the hotel where he was staying.
Together with another couple, they had gone up to his room where he went to sleep while the others were partying. Before he went to sleep, he put his jewelry inside a safe in the room. When he woke up, Beyah was already gone and so was his jewelry worth almost $500,000.
Rogers had told the prosecution that he was not willing to cooperate during the one time he spoke with them.
Despite the failure of the theft charges to prosper, the prosecution instead will go ahead with charging Beyah for violating her probation wherein she is looking at a 20-year prison sentence if convicted.
